Intel(r) Inspector XE 2013 Update 9 is now available
New for Update 9:
Performance and memory consumption improvements during threading error analysis, on average a 3X performance improvement and many applications that ran out of memory can now be analyzed - The Intel Inspector still finds most data race and cross-thread stack access problems. If you discover you are missing problems, use the new Use maximum resources configuration setting to return to previous behavior.
New suppression summary statistics when analysis is complete - Show how many suppression files and rules the Intel Inspector applied and how many problem instances it suppressed.
New memory consumption graph during analysis - Shows how much memory the target application plus the Intel Inspector consume during analysis.
Improved on-demand memory leak detection and memory growth measurement - Gathering memory leak information while an application is running is useful if:
An application does not terminate (such as a server process).
You want memory leak information, but you do not want to wait for an application to terminate.
You want to determine if memory is leaked during a specific interval of application execution, or during a specific user action.
You want to discard information about allocations performed during initialization as a way of filtering out allocations that are not currently of interest.
Measuring memory growth helps you ensure an application uses no more memory than expected. This includes:
Memory an application has allocated and still needs for future calculations
Memory an application has allocated and no longer needs, but has not deallocated
Memory an application has allocated and then leaked
